Turtle Friends Stacked Friends Card
For my final Turtle Friends card, I decided to stack up the images for a "from all of us" style of birthday card. Can you say adorable?!!
Background Basics—I started with a 2" x 5-1/2" piece of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper (retiring soon!) adhered to a So Saffron card base.  
Sentiment Layer—I stamped a Turtle Friends sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink onto a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of Basic White cardstock. I layered it onto a 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, then tied some Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon around the layers and popped it up with Dimensionals.

Stacked Friends—I stamped the large Turtle Friends turtle in Memento Black ink onto scrap Basic White cardstock, colored him in with Light Granny Apple Green and Light Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends and punched him out with the Turtle Punch. I stamped the large turtle again onto So Saffron cardstock, stamped the shell pattern in Granny Apple Green ink and punched it out. I used Paper Snips to finish cutting out the shell to paper piece it onto the original stamped turtle. He's popped up with Dimensionals over the ribbon. 

I used the same method to create the smaller turtle, I just swapped the colors of the turtle body and toes, and it's all hand-cut. I stamped the party had in Memento Black ink onto Basic White, colored with Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and So Saffron Stampin' Blends Markers cut it out and popped it up with a Mini Dimensional. I finished by stamping the bird image in Bumblebee ink onto Basic White, then cutting out and popping up, too. 

Beautiful world 1
Two Cool—I tried the same layout with different stamping supplies for a masculine graduation card that I needed. I knew that the Old World Paper DSP had already retired from the old Annual Catalog, but completely forgot that the Beautiful World stamp set and matching dies were also retired! Oh well…if you don't have these supplies, you can always CASE the original turtle card like I did with a different set of supplies.
This card begins with the Old World Paper on a Cinnamon Cider card base. I tied some Early Espresso Faux Suede Ribbon (the only item that isn't retired!) around the card front.
Beautiful world 2

Wonderful World—I stamped the Beautiful World sentiment in Early Espresso and mounted the layer onto Mossy Meadow. The globe is stamped with Mossy Meadow and Cinnamon Cider, die-cut and popped up.
